    I've read that liquid bandage may seal the wound.I think I also read somewhere that nail polish(?) can be used to seal it?Not sure about the second one,better not try nail polish till someone else confirms or rejects that idea.

    if your cage is secure (which it should be ANYWAYS) and it isn't leaking then the best thing you can do (in my opinion) is turn the lights off and leave it alone, it is stressed enough as it is, having you staring at it will not help.

    Make sure it isn't leaking though

    I think she is dieng :( She is hanging on to the side of the log she hides under and has been hanging there for the past 10 minute and is starting to kind of droop.

    You best best would be to put it in an ICU. This would be a small container with nothing more than a damp paper towel as a substrate. Provide a water dish for your T, as it will need plenty of water. As others have mentioned, you should try to seal the wound. This can be done using super glue or triple nail hardener. Unfortunately, injuries to the abdoman are usually fatal. Sorry to have to say that.

    Good luck with your T.

    yep, she's dying...almost guaranteed. If the split is large enough for alot of white stuff to come out, you'd be doing her a favor to put her in the freezer.
    Falling far enough to really split the abdomen is pretty much a death sentance.

    well, hindsight is always 20/20 isn't it? Hopefully the lesson you have learned is to research before you buy, and obviously to either get a shorter tank, or raise the substrate no?!
    sometimes unfortunately it takes a death to make us pay attention...don't worry, you are not the only one it's happened to.
    At least you learned the lesson, which I can't say everyone does....

    What do you guys think will happen, she is drooping on the side of the log, not moving at all, and the abdomin is real small. Does anyone know whats happening so i can try to get some sleep?

    probably safe to say she is done. If she doesn't move for a long time and looks deflated then she's probably lost too much hemolymph (blood) and internal stuff to keep going. :(

    Her abdomin does look kind of shrunk, and she hasnt moved since about midnight. One leg is strechted out holding on the log, the others or kind of loosly curled around to the edge of the log. Pretty sure she is gone? :( :( :(
